Welcome to the new term

Autumn 2 

This half term we will be teaching the children through the topic of ‘Where the wild things are’. During this topic the children will be developing their skills in all sorts of fun ways, exploring different animals, their habitats through associated activities. We look forward to sharing several popular children’s story books these include: ‘Dear Zoo’; ‘Monkey Puzzle’ and ‘Don’t wake the bear’.  We will be looking at the different patterns on animal skins; the properties and names of 2D shapes and in-depth learning of the numbers 1-3 as part of our maths learning. We have planned a number of engaging and inquisitive activities for our ‘investigation Friday’s!’ that the children will be sure to enjoy.

After our meeting on Friday 13th September, which gave guidance on how to use our online learning journey.  All parents should now have access to their child’s Tapestry online learning journey. If your child is new to Nursery or you do not have a login, please do come and ask a member of the Nursery team who will be happy to assist. On gaining access you will ocasionally receive email notifications making you aware when an observation has been posted.  The observation will highlight the learning thats taking place and their next steps. We ask that you please contribute towards the journal yourselves  evidencing progress your child makes with their next steps and general posts about fun, family activities.

A few quick reminders…

Please do not leave the house without…..

  • A coat/jacket, rain or shine, we can never rely on the British weather.
  • A spare set of clothes; this can be in a labelled plastic bag as we ask that it stays in school so that we have access all times to a spare set of clothes for your child/children. If we do not have this, we will have to call you to either bring some, or collect your child and take home to change them.
  • A labelled water bottle (this must only contain water) Nursery is thirsty work!
  • A labelled pair of wellies, for jumping in puddles, we go outside rain or shine!
  • Their book bag (to store all their lovely pictures, homework and reading diary - once they have been given out).

 

Attendance and Punctuality – if your child is not in school on time or off school altogether they miss out on so much learning – please make sure your child is in school, on time, every day. 

Homework – The children now bring home their homework book on a Thursday.  This will contain at least one piece of homework linked to some of their current learning and we ask that you return their homework book by the following Wednesday.
